How it all began
Wollongong Fitness is started by a group of exercise enthusisasts who meet regular (3 – 4 times a week) for morning runs. It started out as a way to keep fit, meeting at North Beach or Belmore at 7am to get a run in before work on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Our running routine consisted of a mixture of easy runs, fartlek, interval training and long distance runs. At some point we decided to sign up for the Blackmores Bridge Run (a 9km run) as a goal to train towards. After the Bridge Run, we decided to train for a half marathon and added a long run into our training session on Saturday morning. (Thirroul to Sea Cliff Bridge and Back). After a few half marathons, we progressed to marathons, then tri-athlons. During our runs we would discuss among other things, training techniques, recovery tips, exercise nutrition or what the next exciting race event is. At some point we thought it would be good if we could have all these information easily accessible online so that we can share them with everyone; and that was how Wollongong Fitness began…
